Protest held over Springer show
About 30 people held a demonstration outside the BBC in Manchester on Saturday night.

The protest was directed at the corporation's decision to broadcast a version of the musical "Jerry Springer - The Opera".

The programme was shown on BBC2 on Saturday night despite some Christian groups complaining it was offensive and blasphemous.

The protestors in Manchester said they were sticking up for their religion.
